This past Thursday, both Impossible and Polaroid celebrated the opening of Instant Revolution at the Impossible Project NYC Space. With this inaugural exhibition commemorating the Polaroid Classic Line and an ongoing collaboration between two world-leading analog instant pioneers, Instant Revolution portrayed the revolutionary aspects of how artists create, consider and define analog photography. Attendees took in the many shades of the last original Polaroid Spectra film ever produced, while enjoying the warmth of live vinyl music and the company of friends and enthusiasts. Our good friends and fellow Impossible fanatics, Jesse Freidin and Patrick Tobin, were there to capture all the action on PX100 UV+ and PZ600 UV+.
Thank you so much to all who attended, and congratulations to the artists! Instant Revolution will be on display at the Impossible Project NYC Space during regular open hours: Monday through Friday 11am–7pm and on Weekends 12pm–5pm until March 23rd, don’t miss your chance to see it!

This Thursday evening together with Polaroid, we are excited to host the opening of INSTANT REVOLUTION – the first in an upcoming series of artistic collaborations throughout 2012, celebrating the launch of the Polaroid Classic line.
For this unique exhibition, the artists provided us with feedback on their experiences using Polaroid cameras again with original Soft Tone Image film.
“I wanted to use the camera the way I originally used such a device in the 1970s and 80s…to capture an immediate memory. My art is about discovering one’s ‘True Self,’ and Polaroid cameras have been an important tool in assisting in this truthfinding and free expression.”

To celebrate the collaboration between Polaroid and Impossible, The Impossible Project NYC Space will host a very special group exhibition dedicated to showcasing five of the world’s freshest contemporary photographers.

The five artists featured in INSTANT REVOLUTION all take different approaches to illustrating their relationship with analog photography.
Featuring photos captured with the last original Polaroid Spectra film production run from 2008, one of the first products introduced as part of the Polaroid Classic line, five of the world’s most dynamic and contemporary artists have contributed to INSTANT REVOLUTION: Gary Baseman, James Franco, Maripol, Mary Ellen Mark and Jennifer Juniper Stratford. INSTANT REVOLUTION will be shown at The Impossible Project Space NYC from February 9 to March 23 2012 and on our official website.

This past Thursday, we were so grateful to celebrate the opening of Oskar Landi’s Also in India exhibition at the NYC Space! With his debut show at Impossible, Landi portrays the country through dry image transfers of original Type 679 Polaroid film, revealing imperfections and faint colors reminiscent of early photographic processes and hand coloring techniques. Attendees took in the many textures of India as portrayed by the artist and enjoyed delicious artisan chocolate from FINE & RAW!
Those wishing to see the exhibition may visit the Impossible NYC Space any time during store hours: Monday through Friday 11am–7pm and on Weekends 12pm–5pm until February 9th. Thanks so much (and congratulations!) to Oskar and everyone who attended!

Continuing the series of Impossible Art Works featured on the South Wall at the New York City Impossible Project Space, we are proud to present French born photographer Bruce Soyez-Bernard and his latest work, entitled “Ensemble #1, #2, #3, #4.”
Currently based in New York, Bruce began as a photojournalist in Africa for two years before transitioning into Beauty and Fashion photography in Paris and New York for prestigious clients such as Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Schwarzkopf.
These four composite pieces, called “Ensemble,” are a continuation of Soyez-Bernard’s photographic work on the body. Finding inspiration in shapes, skin texture, color and light. Taking several images with different crops and levels, the frames are then re-united, the body put back together, or part of the body, as a final collage.
While using The Impossible Project’s film range, Bruce pursues this process with a focus on the film grain, format and the “happy accidents” of this specific instant medium to create impressive life-size abstract pieces.
